A powerful language integrated query (LINQ) library for Go
About a month ago we welcomed a new developer to our go-linq maintainers team cleitonmarx (Cleiton Marques) who introduced an interesting pattern for emulating generics in Go and became the main show-maker of the third version of the library. Here is a small story of how the generics behavior was emulated in go-linq.
I am happy to announce that my go2linq (a powerful language integrated query (LINQ) library for Go) project has been merged into the go-linq’s master branch. Now it is available as the newest version of go-linq library (v2.0.0).
Several months ago I started learning Go language and came across an interesting library go-linq which is an implementation of Microsoft’s LINQ technology in Go. And while it is a good library I find its performance to be really weak because of its design. Trying to improve the situation resulted in a complete rewrite using iterators in a lightweight and simple manner.
